I woke up this morning and saw the "Mars Apocalypse" post, so I decided to do a little digging.
The script that appears when checking the source on the page wherever someone has a hacked profile, the url that appears is "j.mp/h4_y".
 
 
Simply entering j.mp into the url bar led me to bitly, the url shortener. When I previewed the link (add + to the end of any bitly url), it led me to this page:
 
 
I initially thought that someone created a fake account under his username, but a little more digging showed the account was created in May of 2012.
 
 
Now the question isn't who, but why?

Ok it was me. I hadn't done any coding / computer wizardry in over two years and wanted to see if I still had any skills left

I had no idea the reaction was going to be this fast, and truthfully was intending to remove it after a few days once I had concluded it worked properly.
 
I assure you that your accounts were not entered by anybody. It was simply an iFrame that modifies information when you load a page
 
 
Hope you guys can accept my apology and that I won't become some disgraced player around here. The reason for my re-appearance was still to make my worlds available once again so the community can benefit from something different, and I hope you guys will still be able to enjoy them without resenting me.
 
 
Peace out!
 
Alex

Thanks qwertyes :)
The reason for my return was still to make my worlds available again, I thought it was a shame the community hadn't seen many new things during my absence.
But yes making this virus was stupid, I hope everyone will be as cool about it as you are
